2016 NEASC Standards and Bridgeport Naturopathy's Transgressions

here, a commemoration of sorts.  The college and university regional accreditation body NEASC, this year, has updated member schools' 'so-called operational standards' [see 001., below].  Then, I include a scan of a response I got from NEASC in 2004 about the quackery known as naturopathy, which they oversee by way of NEASC member 'the University of Bridgeport' [see 002., below].  Finally, some musings [see 003., below]:

001. NEASC's 2016 standards (here; 2016 archived);

002. NEASC's 2004 response to my complaint:



it poses this formulation of my complaint:

"are students and prospective students given timely, sufficient and accurate information to serve as a basis for their decisions regarding pursuing a degree in naturopathic medicine? [...and] are students in naturopathic medicine provided with adequate academic advising?";

003. musings:

003.a. when I started naturopathy in 1998 at UB, was I given "timely, sufficient and accurate information to serve as a basis for their decisions regarding pursuing a degree in naturopathic medicine?":

no.  Science subset abject nonscience is a form of fraud, I don't care if its academic commerce or regular commerce.  I was not told up front that UB naturopathy is pseudoscience and obligates you to the unethical.

003.b. in my experience at UB, were "students in naturopathic medicine provided with adequate academic advising?":

no.  Oh no!  I didn't have an adviser, and my clinic supervisors blackballed me from seeing patients, therein obstructing my graduation.

003.c. what about NOW:

now, I was of a 1997-2002 era.  You'd think in 12 years since my complaint, things would change at UB.  One of the requirements of accreditation is CONTINUOUS QUALITY IMPROVEMENT.  But things haven't improved, they've actually gotten WORSE and NEASC doesn't care.  Naturopathy's reversal of values WORSENS over time.  For instance, here's a UB ND graduate posing abject nonscience as 'science subset naturopathy subset homeopathy subset science-ejected vitalism and supernaturalism' (2016 archived).

The fraud continues...

Licensed falsehood marches on...
